My Locale Kevin Yang hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me I have a short hiking history but have been lucky enough to have done some amazing trips. I did a backdoor 7-day hike to Machu Picchu (not Inca Trail) in 2005. In 2009 I did the John Muir Trail, and the West Coast Trail in summer 2010. You can read my journals for the last 2 on my blog.
